Town, Village of Woodbury reject annexation request by Kiryas Joel, developer 

Two of the three municipalities asked by a developer and the Village of Kiryas Joel to shift 14 acres from Woodbury into Monroe have now turned down the request.

The Woodbury Town Board voted 4-0 against the annexation petition Thursday night, a little over a week after the Village of Woodbury's board took the same action. That leaves only the Monroe Town Board, which must decide within two weeks.

The property included in the petition is just outside Kiryas Joel and consists of nearly 13 undeveloped acres and an adjacent home that businessman Ziggy Brach owns and a half-acre parcel on which Kiryas Joel has two water-storage tanks.
